I’ve had some great trips in Scotland recently and it has undoubtedly solidified my love for my home country. I was born here 27 years ago and have always lived here, but I love travelling here too.

I travelled right up to the north of the country two weeks ago and fell head over heels again. I was stunned by how the scenery could steal my breath away and how I could be surprised by things I saw.

When travelling by train to the north of Scotland I found myself constantly saying ‘wow look over there’ or ‘oh my gosh look at that beach’, as the landscape changed outside the train window. I was saying similar things when driving along the incredible North Coast 500 route too.

There’s so much to see, do and discover in Scotland. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of travelling within the country and exploring more of what it has to offer.

Scotland has a bit of everything. It has landscapes that can take your breath away. There are fantastic cities full of life, energy, great museums, amazing restaurants and chic bars and hang out spots. The islands dotted all around the coast are just waiting to be explored. And, if the sun is shining, I truly believe it has some of the best scenery in the world. 

There’s still so much of Scotland I want to see. I have a mental ‘bucket-list’ of places I want to visit and things I want to do that’s as long as my arm. And, somehow it only seems to get longer. Despite discovering new places as much as I can, there are more being added all the time. I only have to hear about somewhere from a friend or fellow blogger, or see a picture of something amazing to make me want to go there too.

And, of course, there are places I already love that I keep returning to. I adore Glasgow, and feel fortunate that it’s less than 10 minutes away from my home. Edinburgh is always beautiful, charming and fun to visit. St Andrews and North Berwick are two of my favourite seaside towns that I’ve visited countless times. These, and others, are places I am happy to visit again and again.

Scotland’s compact size makes travelling and exploring simple. It’s a small country, meaning everything is within reasonably easy reach, even the majority of the islands. This makes short trips and weekend breaks absolutely possible, even with limited time. 

Scotland, I’ll never tire of you. Don’t ever change. 

Do you love travelling in Scotland as much as I do?
